hi buddies,

how are you, I am wanner, let me join with you all in this chat room to learn English.

Kind regard


what means " you'll be relieved to know"?

Hello mirjanas,

As I said in response to a similar question on another page, to check vocabulary items like this you can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool, which you can find on the right of the page.  Type in your item (such as 'relieved') and you will see links to definitions, examples and grammatical information of relevant entries.  It's a very useful tool.

and i dont understand this question
we use (such/so) before adjectiove (noum or just a noun) could u give me an example?
thank you

Hello Mark828,

First of all, nosy and noisy have different meanings: nosy means being too interested in other people's business, while noisy means making a lot of noise or being very loud.

The meaning of 'so' and 'such' is similar, but we use them differently.  We use 'so' to modify and strengthen an adjective:

He is so nosy!

That party is so noisy that I can't sleep.

We use 'such' to modify and strengthen a noun, especially in the construction [such a + adjective + noun]:

That was such a party!

He is such a nosy person!

I hope that clarifies it for you.
